A Thing of the Past


Raising the question about whether herds are a thing of the past, this painting is a hybrid between abstract and realistic elements, exploring the vague line between the two, blurring the three dimensional stage with the flat plane of the canvas. The subject matter may also be interpreted as a reference to social interactions and tensions among people, referencing the group mentality, confrontation, and isolation.

The Herd, 40" x 38", oil on canvas, 2012.
